If you have questions about dental treatments or your oral health, our team is happy to answer them! We’ve compiled a list of commonly asked questions that we receive from our patients. If you don’t see yours listed, feel free to reach out so we can answer it.
How often should I change out my toothbrush?
The American Dental Association recommends replacing the head of your electric toothbrush or getting a new manual toothbrush every three months, or after each time you get sick. You should also replace your toothbrush if you notice that the bristles are becoming frayed.
Do I really need to go to the dentist every six months?
To keep your teeth and gums healthy and prevent small oral health problems, like cavities and gum disease, it’s important to visit Dr. Sharolli every six months. During your appointments, we’ll examine your mouth and make sure that it’s healthy. We’ll then professionally clean your teeth to prevent oral health problems from forming until your next appointment with us.
Will my dental insurance cover cosmetic treatments?
Unfortunately, it’s very uncommon for dental insurance companies to approve the coverage of cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening. However, it’s always a good idea to double-check by contacting them directly.
How do I know when it’s time to replace my dental crown?
Here are some signs that your dental crown may need to be replaced:
- It’s visibly worn-down
- Your gumline is receding
- The gums around it are swollen or tender
- The crown is cracked or damaged
Do I need to replace missing teeth?
Replacing missing teeth is important because without a full set of teeth, it could negatively impact your oral health and make everyday life a little harder. At Wichita Falls Dental, we offer custom-crafted dental bridges to replace your missing teeth.
